Pilot Scoop: NBC's Joe, Joe and Jane Casts Final Lead and Rounds Out Ensemble
In the multi-cam sitcom, written by Joe Port and Joe Wiseman (The Office, Just Shoot Me), Will Greenberg (a recent guest star on The Office) has been tapped to star as Joe Waxman, an author caught in an ongoing war between two needy, flawed people — his wife Jane (Army Wives‘ Sally Pressman) and his ladies man co-author/BFF Joe Dougan (Brothers & Sisters‘ Dave Annable).
In addition to Greenberg’s casting, Lauren Lapkus (Are You There, Chelsea?) and Asif Ali have joined the pilot’s ensemble in the roles of Melissa and Matt.
Daily Show correspondent Larry Wilmore co-stars as Jane’s recently divorced stepfather.
The project is based on the real life of Joe Wiseman and the complicated relationship between his manipulative wife Jane and his best friend Joe.
